Tired of all pulses feeling “slippery” or “thin and wiry?”
Learn how to make a proper, adequate, and detailed diagnosis .
Many acupuncturists/practitioners of TCM don't know how to make a proper, adequate, and detailed diagnosis when seeing patients. They "guess" about the diagnosis according to the symptoms or worse, they ask the patient what his or her diagnosis is(!).
...then you need to take pulse diagnosis courses from Martha Lucas. In Dr. Lucas' opinion, the diagnosis is the most important part of your practice because effective treatments are based on correct diagnosis. You won't learn this system from anyone else and this is one of those unique opportunities for you to participate in the best way to learn: supervised practice in a small class.
This is a multifaceted year long program that includes in person supervised practice and mentoring. I show you how my pulse diagnosis method works in treatment. That’s right: in this program you will not only feel pulses, you will feel them before, during, and after needling. Don’t know depression’s signature in the pulses? I will show you. Don’t know how cancer feels? I will show you. Let me amaze you.

|Clinical application of special acupuncture point prescriptions to effectively balance the pulses|

In this class, you will leave with information on acupuncture functions from a variety of views: TCM, Five Element, classical, channel theory. There is also supervised practice to demonstrate the effectiveness of some point combinations to resolve imbalances in the pulses. This course gives practitioners the practical experience that they need to become better practitioners.
